Our Picks

Top content from across the community, hand-picked by us.

Only one i can think of is Craig Skudalski, who played for us for a few games is going to an AHL camp.  I could see them all sticking in the ECHL.  But I believe the ones in AHL camps, like Armstrong won't be back.

I think Pensacola's coach likely has more insight, and Fayetteville is not willing to risk having nothing remaining from a situation they cannot control or probably understand with their connections to the player.  I guess it could be the other way around, however, if the Fayetteville coach is well connected with Bonar's ECHL coach.

I'll drink to that...

Ditto Greg's topic title.  A bit of web-reading indicates that CML is tough to diagnose because the symptoms are wide ranging & common to other diseases, so Brian is lucky his medical team came to an actionable conclusion.  Looks like there are several treatment options as well, so that should be some comfort.  Boyle's published family history of cancer doesn't seem to indicate that was a contributor to his form of disease, but the fact that his Dad beat his own cancer should have set a good example for Brian's recovery.  Good luck & God bless the entire Boyle family.

Looks Nice 

Great read!

Thanks, Mac. 

Good find, Mac, worthy of Promotion. 

Its always fun to keep up with guys after the season is over and follow them in other leagues. To bad they didn't win the awards they were up for.

Nice article.  Ive always believed what the article included.  Get the casual fans there some way or another and put a quality product on the ice and most people will enjoy the excitement of the game and come back for more.  Best way is to have a packed house where the crowd is loud and into the games.  The players feed off of all the fans as well.  We had some good crowds last year in Roanoke, it makes a total difference in the enjoyment of the games for everybody.  Some of the best times were by a promotion our echl team would do back in the day.  $5 dollar tickets for everyone to get in for one game a year they called "Pack the Roundhouse Night".  Nothing like every seat filled and close to 9,000 loud fans.  It brought the casual fan out and im sure a few of them are hardcore fans now.  I like your teams new owners they seem to know what they are doing and I surely hope they turn the attendance around so we can be rivals in the league for a long time.  Glad to see owners are helping them out to, like they should be.  Nobody in the league is really close enough to steal any other teams fan bases.  So they should all be sharing tips with each other to help grow the stability of the league.  Getting close to season, just a little over a month and a week.  Im ready for our first showdown October 20th!!!!!!!!

Glad to see the NYE Firework show is back. I was impressed by how much they were able to do with the Icemen a couple years ago.

Yes I just noticed.....

Last night's announcement ...

I agree with everything you ar saying WLGT. I've also have met the owners over a couple beers at a swamp dog's game. They will improve the attendance. They've already added cameras and show replays on the marquee. With Jeff Longo and his experience in the hockey world, I see good things in the furture for our Marksmen. I'm looking forward to hockey.
